Thank you to all those who participated in the LinkedIn Learning April Challenge: Let’s Talk Communication. Employees who participated in this challenge were asked to watch a short video each day and then send us their biggest takeaways. Here is what they learned:
Pieter deHart: My biggest takeaway for the LinkedIn Learning April Challenge is that there are three types of listening: Listing for Affirmation, Listening to Defend, and Listening to Discover. To communicate effectively, one should learn to listen effectively, working toward Listening to Discover.
Donna Mleziva: My biggest takeaway from the LinkedIn Learning April Challenge: Let’s Talk Communication was being mindful of weak words to purge from use. I use “just” or “actually” when I am concerned about coming off too strong or forceful when communicating. It is something to keep in mind while communicating. The tips about how to explain a task were also helpful.
Lea Truttmann: I had a few takeaways but the big one for work was the 10c’s of business writing. I just find it so helpful, especially in emails (which is most of our communication!) to have all the information. It can be frustrating to send emails back and forth and communication is lost when emails become too lengthy.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the April Challenge.
